Can someone who ‘does’ twitter take him to task please…
He must understand about Copyright and Terms and Conditions by now…
Can you or Joe email me with the background?
Hi Russell & thanks for the heads up Ian. Naturally people will help themselves to images, even people one doesn't necessarily like. I wouldn't be too fussed about no linking back, except this is the first time I've seen someone do it while deliberately trimming my sig from the image. While I'm not much of a twitterer I've attempted to point that out.
this story from The Press this morning makes me wonder what’s going on even more. Specifically — “a joint research project by the Taxpayers Union and Fairfax Media”.
A bit more depth here
Plato intimated that
“For a change to a new type of music is something to beware of as a hazard of all our fortunes. For the modes of music are never disturbed without unsettling of the most fundamental political and social conventions.”
There's a Fugs song about that. While it's not in the same league as their Ramses the Second is Dead, My Love, or their inspired raiding of Matthew Arnold, and perhaps serves to demonstrate why there aren't a lot of Plato-derived songs, it has curiosity value.
I do kind of get the impression it’s become amateur hour over at ACT
That's hardly a new development.You could even claim that Banks is the most "professional" of the three ACT MPs who've been found guilty of an offence in court. Then there was the ridiculous Trevor Loudon, who was party vice president a few years back. It was Loudon who was famously attacked by a rice flail wielding martial artist after harassing him for driving a Lada. Loudon's beef appeared to be that Lada components were manufactured in the Soviet gulag. Presumably he had no objection to Banks's early 90s advocacy of exploiting the Maori prison population to produce handicrafts for the tourist trade.
Was there a PhotoForum gallery in Auckland as well?
A little history here.
Yeah all you do is onload a swank trailer
Thank you. Those images are something else.
In the words of Sir Joh, “don’t you worry about that!”
That'd be the Sir Joh who described dealing with the media as "feeding the chooks".
This is my latest cover art
(and yes, Chad got clearance on the collage elements)
And very handsome it looks too in my freshly-downloaded DRM-free EPUB, which for the iTunes phobic can be found here.
I know, I know,
ruins the cadence…
Marinkovich in his 80s heyday sported the kind of red-framed face-furniture of the type later favoured by Jim Hopkins. One decade's off-the-shelf bold statement of cutting-edge individuality became the next's must-have accessory for cracking jokes to rest home audiences.
Indeed, and there is that pesky
next big extinction period
to presell to a complicit public…
will they go for baroque,
and pile on the ‘guilt’,
or all green-pandering
with hollow echoes of eco…
Eco watch repair.
Being just contaminates the void.
